SassyJoe changed her name...SO?

Monday, December 06, 2010

A couple days ago I posted my status as having changed my name. I was going to explain why, but the site would only allow so many characters for my status. I was going to post the reason the following day, but realized it would probably take 3 or 4 days' postings (because of the 'character limitation').

For those of you dying to know (like Flowerdalejewel, JLB1053, and, when I joined SparkPeople, they wouldn't let me be "sassyjo" because they said someone else was already using it, so I made myself "sassyjoe".

The 'sassy' part of my name is a mispronunciation of 'sissy' that has stuck with me as a family nickname for 57+ years. (My family doesn't know how to let go of things.) The 'jo' part of my name was supposed to be short for Johnson, a name I 'borrowed' from my hubby almost 19 years ago.

Long story short (as IF I could possibly do that) some of the people at SP think I'm a guy named "Joe." So a couple days ago I changed it to SassyJay, as in the letter "J".

Of course now they'll think I'm a guy named "Jay." :^(

    Oh you say it's a boring story, but it perked my boring day. It's five in the morning and I am eating breakfast by myself. Hardly a reason to start chuckling. But thanks to you, I am smiling like an idiot by myself. Your'e the best! emoticon And the wait was half the fun. Thanks for the story and not leaving me hanging.

    Funny thing is when signing up I found that the common names I actually DO go by were already take too . . . I tried so many times that finally just put in anything it would take. Know the feeling of knowing who you are, but someone else already has your name . . . .
